Does anyone have any recommendations on 802.11g PCMCIA cards for my 15" AlBook? There isn't much information on the web about which drivers work with PPC. I know that the NDIS drivers are out of the question.

Both
Netgear WG511T (802.11g)
and
Netgear WAG511 (802.11a/b/g)
have Atheros chipsets and are supported by the Madwifi driver http://madwifi.sourceforge.net/

http://users.linpro.no/janl/hardware/wifi.html is fairly accurate, and quite recent.

Note that the D-Link DWL-AG650 (a/b/g, which I purchased recently :( ) is also Atheros based, but the B2 hardware version is NOT currently supported by Madwifi

Avoid the Prism based cards since the new versions are software based, much like winmodems.
